In May 2015, after staying out of Second Life Anniversary celebrations for a few years, Linden Lab announced it was planning a Music Fest around the time of the Second Life Birthday, but would be a separate event. Last week, Linden Lab through Xiola Linden announced it would once again be holding a Music Fest event, their third annual one.
For the last few years, we’ve enjoyed a weekend of live music in celebration of Second Life’s birthdays - and there is no better time for a music festival than summer! This year, once again we’re hoping to draw out all you music makers to come audition for the festival. All genres are welcome! From bands to solo acts, electronic to acoustic - we encourage anyone to sign up for consideration. The Second Life Music Fest is an opportunity to perform at one of the biggest celebrations in Second Life, and it’s a paid gig!
As their announcement states, the Lab is accepting auditions from performers of all genres, and from both bands and solo musicians. Those interested have until May 24th to sign an application form. The auditions at the "Showcase" as the Lab calls it are open to the public, taking place on Friday June 2 from 12-2PM SL time, and Saturday June 3 from 6-8PM SL time.
The Music Fest will take place over three days from Friday June 23 to Sunday June 25
Music Fest Day 1: June 23, 2017 from 11 AM – 3 PM (SLT)
Music Fest Day 2: June 24, 2017 from 8 PM - 12 AM (SLT)
Music Fest Day 3: June 25, 2017 from 4 PM - 8 PM (SLT)
Linden Lab is also planning another anniversary event. This one for shoppers. And for this one, it needs participating merchants.
In addition to Music Fest, we are also planning a festive inworld shopping event and are actively looking for Merchants who are willing to participate! We had a very successful Valentine’s Day shopping event, and are making this one even bigger - with plans for three Regions of participating stores offering gifts and discounts on items.
Merchants wishing to participate are asked to fill out this form by May 15. The event will take place from June 5 to June 26.
